    I'm not happy with the crop, either...hair, ok, ear, not ok.

    Love how sharp the eyes are and even the drool. I might try to smooth out the redness around the mouth, though - I know he's probably just blotchy, but it looks a little dirty/foodish. I have the same problem with one of mine who gets eczema patches around the mouth - natural, but not flattering.

    LOL Hes a great little model. Curently at the age where he does what i tell him! YAY!

    Its rare i do full crops so its nice to get some feedback on what works and what doesnt. Guess its down to personal pref then??

    High Pass filter blended to hard light. Leave the setting around 2.5ish depending on the image :)
